Get a wifi mesh system
Households are busy with online activity. Whether it’s schoolwork, video calls, streaming or gaming, you’ll want to ensure you have a good wifi set up so each of those devices can get reliable, fast internet at peak usage times. Where you place your modem can have a big impact on your wifi performance. Here are some key pointers to consider:
Place your modem where the most online activity occurs in your home, typically the living area where family members gather, stream content and work. The closer you are to it, the better your wifi signal will be.
Raise your modem off the floor by putting it on a shelf or table. This helps improve signal coverage as wifi signals tend to radiate outward and downward from the modem.
As best you can, avoid obstructions like walls, furniture, and large appliances that can block or interfere with the wifi signal. A good rule of thumb is if you can see your modem, your wifi performance should be at its best.
